Re: [TalkAntietam] Artillery techniques
- Wow. Thanks a million for all of the great suggestions. This is a great
help. I knew I should've paid more attention all of those times that I
saw Tom Clemens and Paul Chiles demonstrate this at the battlefield,
but now I think I will be all right.
Hey, Richard. I screened that new History Channel "Antietam"
documentary last night, the one that will air on April 9th. You got
more air time than anyone! Good job.
- Hey buddy! It might have been in Fox's Regimental Losses in the Civil
War. Also, to the best of my knowledge, Antietam had the highest
number of surgeons killed in a single battle: four. At Gettysburg I
think one was killed and thirteen wounded. I don't know how many
surgeons were wounded at Antietam, but know one or two surgeons from
the 14th Connecticut had a narrow escape at the Roulette Farm. Scott
